Here is a mini I have been working on for several weeks.
Lately, I am lucky to be able to paint a little every day.
Unfortunately, it is only for 5-15 minutes at a time.
This figure is part of my growing batch of options for my GM running us through the Pathfinder Adventure Path, Reign of Winter.
I always thought blue, white, and gold were good colors together. It is popular in many heraldic devices.
I am most happy with this figure in terms of the following:
The freehand wood grain of the axe, the outcome of the gold NMM on the belt buckle/hardware in front.
Also, getting his eyes right in the recesses of his helmet.
What I am least happy with is the runes along the white part of the tabard trim. The area is too small to work with to really get good darklining around each rune, so they are a little indistinct. Also, I tried to make each one its own independent polished gold SENMM. I don't think it turned out too well, because it's just too small an area for each piece. I tried it on the scabbard as well, which worked a little better. But, this is the most confusing part of highly polished SENMM: Do multiple pieces at different heights have their own horizon line? I painted it as if they do, but am not sure that's realistic...
Also, the transition of the cow horns on his helmet is a little washed out in the photo, but also very subtle in hand.
Finally, one additional comment.
I have seen a lot of posts about this figure comparing it to the metal version, and bemoaning a lack of detail in the BONES version.
I really tried to bring out the life of this BONES model, because I personally feel that the sculpt is great, and the translation to BONES is very good.
So, without further ado, here is my version of Sigurd, Viking, BONES 77399.
Please provide C&C, especially as it pertains to the issues I brought up above.
Here is the Sphinx from Bones 3. She was fun to paint with lots of little details. She has the prettiest face and since she is a little larger, there was lots of room to practice facial features.
Hope my players are good at riddles!
The color on the photos is a little "off" and everything appears a bit more yellow than it actually is. My batteries were dying in my camera so I was trying to hurry and didn't realize the color was slightly off.
C&C welcome! Thanks for looking!
Update: She is on the list to be released on March 5!
Lately I've been thinking I want to wrap up the Bones 1 core set. This assassin, which looked more ranger-ish to me, was near the top of the pile, and ready to go, so out she came. I glued her to a base, and then onto one of my cork holders. She was already brown lined, so I started with Muddy Olive for the cloak, and Warrior Flesh for the face. Worked a bit on the eyes with Viper Green, and then decided that the scarf was going to be in the color of autumnal leaves, so she'd be a little more interesting than just muted browns and greens.
And this was where I left off after the first evening.

Well, at least he didn't end up on my shelf of shame. Some days my eyes and hands just aren't up to the job. I also learned today that blending metallics is really hard. Much more practice is needed. I am pleased with the way the lighting effect worked out, though.
